  No Wonder They Call It The Real Presence (Lives Changed by Christ in Eucharistic Adoration)
- David Pearson

Have you ever wondered about the story behind some of the people who make an hour of adoration in your church or chapel week after week? Aside from the one or two line petitions we all get to read, no one has undertaken the task to give an in-depth look into their lives until now. David Pearson has taken nine people, interviewed them and given us a book that not only captures our attention but unexpectedly surprises us by what these adorers have to say. Best of all, is the invaluable insight we get about the God Who made us that is brought to light as a result of his inquiries.

The book is available in retail and online bookstores or by calling (800) 458-8505. Pearson is features editor of the National Catholic Register.
